's writer and producer and fox news contributor pat caddell are here. pat culted on the making of this film. i don't say this lightly but i mean every word of this. this is the most powerful documentary i have ever seen in my life. there is no way that anybody watches this film could vote for barack obama. it's impossible. you bring us back and walk us through the whole election cycle. it's almost like -- it's almost like, i feel like i have amnesia and i follow this every day. tell us how you got started. >> dave and i talked about having a film for this cycle. we didn't want to just talk to conservatives or tea party people. we wanted to really think through and look at it through david axelrod's eyes in the summer and fall of 2012 and look at the battleground states, 7 states, 5 to 6 million voters, all democrats, all independents, that voted for president obama. that's when we reached out to pat caddell. we needed people to help us find the pool of people who were so strongly supporting president obama and go through the journey of their live and it is country in the last four years. >>
to convince voters otherwise? we will bring in our campaign insiders, john leboutillier, and pat caddell, a fox news contributor, and former pollster for president carter and doug schoen, former pollster for bill clinton. i get to join the guys today. these polls are changing every day. the latest fox news poll, let's talk about that. >>pat: they are changing each day because this is a very close race. we agree there is a slight obama advantage. i also think we agree, and i feel the election is by no means over. governor romney has had a rough stretch. president obama has benefited. bottom line is this is a race in flux and the debates will determine where we go. >>heather: you attribute that latest poll with obama up 5 week to the rough week of romney? >>doug: the romney campaign since the democratic national convention, romney campaign has been invisible and made gaffes. >>pat: romney campaign has two weeks of problems. obama campaign came out with the initiative. what is amazing, they keep closing up. there also is -- part of the problem is, which i get all the time, some of the polls
congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink they are over sampling democrats and the mainstream media is away from what the race is. that is, a close contest. the president is about 48 or 49 percent approval and vote share. the governor's campaign has lost support. he is down around 43 percent. the 47 percent combined with the drift in the campaign has reduced his vote share, but it is still a a race, and the debate will be critical. >>gregg: this poll shows president obama at 49 and 44 and that can chain instantly. some of the media have written governor romney's obituary, this is premature. >> the media polls, the mainstream media uses the state polls like the new form of negative advertising. other negative campaigning against romney. the news organizations that are b
that he has the edge. does he? >> guest: no. because i think as pat caddell pointed out, people do not want more government. in other words if you think this is a mistake for mitt, what do you think is the correct answer in 47% don't pay federal income tax. would you like it to be 51%? would you like it to be 58%? would you like it to be 62%? we live in a country that is sliding off the cliff. there is no money to give people breaks. money has been spent. we have to pay back $16 trillion officially. just to get back to being broke. and this is why the great wickedness of all this, this is the pitch he should make, we have healthy people in their early 50s who are going on permanent social security disability, because they have given up hope of finding employment. is that america? the great wickedness of big government is not just the waste of money, but the waste of lives. and mitt romney should be saying that in the america he'll build, in the america that he will pull back from the cliff edge, that there is going to be fewer wasted lives and fewer food stamps and there will be le
.5 percent. now, we have john leboutillier, a former republican congressman, and pat caddell, a pollster, and doug schoen, former pollster for bill clinton. this is in the margin of error so we can call it a tie, but, doug, has the president essentially moved ahead here? >>doug: it is clear he has moved ahead. now it is in the margin of error but at the outside. the trend on issue questions and voting questions are going in president obama's direction. this is the time that the romney campaign has to recalibrate and come up with something new and different. >>pat: absolutely. can you argument whether it is a couple points or this, that, or the other but the movement is there and we will talk about the economy, and the president's job rating is moving that way. another thing that is important to note, i believe the democrats got a bump not from obama but for their party i.d. with movement suggesting in the polls that people are moving more to the democratic brand and, remember, bill clinton did this. that was the speech, aimed, attacking the republican brand, not romney. but when you move
is that you -- this is the quote -- routinely weigh result for party identification. even doug schoen and pat caddell says rasmussen polls more republicans. explain that. >> we do wait for partisan identification. whether you are republican or democrat is the best indicator of how you are going to vote. we don't pull the numbers out of the air. we find out how many republicans and democrats are in the electorate. we are continually updating it. megyn: if you polled in the state of new york your poll would have more democrats than republicans than in a state like texas. >> we are showing 38% democrats and 26% republicans. megyn: i want to talk about your past performance. with regard to the 2008 presidential election. fordham political scientists did an analysis of 23 polling estimations. rasmussen and pew were perfectly in agreement with the actual election result. you got it right. in 2010, the congressional mid-terms you predicted the republicans would gain 50 seats in the house. they won 47 in the senate. and same thing back in 2004. you -- within .5% you projected bush would win 50.2%. he
well as president, on both sides. how about that. joined now by pat caddell a pollster for president carter and chris wilson a pollster. that really strikes me. they say yes i like mitt romney or yes i like president obama but i'm a little nervous whether they can do the job. >> once in a while you get a new question on a poll that is interesting and helps illuminate something. this is really important. i believe that, you know, this notion that there are only a handful of people that everybody is looked into their positions is ludicrous. that's what people who don't know anything about voters think. voters move all over the place. some people are undecided today, move tomorrow to support softly or hard, whatever. this is what is -- what is important are is that we have a fifth of the voters that are movable. look, even if half of them are movable there is only half really that are truly movable, that is important. but 60%. when you see people saying that they are anxious it makes things like the news story today we had of what's happened in the middle east, if i were president obama
